Replacement Refs: 2 Were Previously Fired

Evidently, it’s slim pickings out there for replacement officials: “Two referees who were fired by the N.B.A. have been asked to officiate games while the league navigates a labor standoff with its regular referees. The two former referees, Michael Henderson and Robbie Robinson, are among 44 replacements invited to attend training camp this week, according to a list obtained by The New York Times. Both men were fired earlier this decade.”
